When We Gather

Calendar of Events

Getting involved and helping to start a new church is a special and exciting opportunity. We hope you find ways to connect with Uptown Church throughout the year.

Summer 2019 Schedule

 

Summer Picnics

During the summer months, Uptown Church gets together for monthly picnics in the neighborhood. Not only do we eat together and hang out, but we feed anyone in the neighborhood that wants to come. We offer food, face-painting, balloons, hula-hoops, jump ropes, and games for the whole family.

Our picnics are not just for us, but an opportunity for our church to bless the neighborhood. Join us for our next picnic on August 16 at Clarendon Park from 6pm-8pm for our next church-wide picnic.

 

VBS

Blast Off with Uptown Church for Vacation Bible School! Our VBS program will run August 5th to 9th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. daily. At To Mars and Beyond VBS, your children will enjoy an interactive, energizing, Bible-based good time as they explore where God’s power can take them.

Prayer Walks (during spring, summer, and fall months)

Mondays at 6:30pm, groups of people from Uptown Church walk through the neighborhood, praying over our community and praying with people in our community. We meet at the McDonalds on Wilson and Sheridan and head out from there. You are invited to help us impact our neighborhood through the power of prayer.

 

Small Groups

Our summer small groups meet in July and August. These discipleship groups are a vital form of ministry for Uptown Church as they help facilitate a deeper connection to God and others. We offer a variety of groups that meet at various times throughout the week. Sign up is easy and always available in our Sunday morning services.

Fall Festival

On Saturday October 12th, Uptown Church will host its annual Fall Festival for the neighborhood. This is a completely free event that offers families the chance to play carnival games, hear live music, ride ponies, experience a petting zoo, eat a meal together, visit snack stations, jump in a bounce house and much more! Come celebrate our church’s one-year anniversary with us and join the party! Did we mention that EVERYTHING is free?

 

Newcomer Lunches

Every few months, we host a free lunch after the Sunday morning service for individuals and families who are new to Uptown Church. It is a chance to meet other new people at the church, get to know Pastor Jeremy better, and hear from other key ministry team partners. This is an informal time to be together, ask questions, and learn more about the vision and direction of the church.

 

 
 

Community Conversations

Twice a year, Uptown Church and Uplift Community High school partner together to host a public conversation for the neighborhood. Each discussion features a diverse panel of powerful and intelligent voices that help us address issues we face as a neighborhood, city, and country. Previous conversations have focused on immigration and race relations. Our next discussion will be November 2019.

 

Connect Nights (during fall, winter, spring months)

On the third Friday of the month, our church goes out for dinner and dessert. We usually pick a couple of economical, family friendly places around Andersonville for different groups to eat dinner at. The different options allow for us to dine in small groups and accommodate any food allergies or dietary restrictions. This is followed by all the dinner groups meeting at George’s Ice Cream for dessert and coffee. Stay connected with us through Instagram and Facebook for exact locations, dates, and times.
